Directly after the 1945 liberation, Maria Austria and Henk Jonker established the photo agency Particam Pictures (a contraction of Partisan Camera) in Amsterdam. There they were joined by the photographers Aart Klein and Wim Zilver Rupe. The agency’s portraits and photographs of post-war reconstruction gained widespread recognition. In 1948 Particam Pictures became the main photographic agency for the newly established Holland Festival, an annual festival of music, theatre, opera and ballet.
From the start, Maria was highly active in promoting photography within the Gebonden Kunsten in de federatie (GKf), an organisation that represented the interests of artists. She pleaded with the Ministry of Culture to recognise photography as an art form in its own right so that subsidies would also be available to photographers.
